Les Miles And Mark Richt, Atlanta Hawks Contraction, And Al Horford's Blog: Around The Perimeter

Dawgs: Braves & Birds charts the differences between the 8-1 LSU Tigers and 5-5 Georgia Bulldogs, finding there really aren't many. The Dawgs and Tigers are almost literally a couple bounces of the ball apart, to which you might attribute luck, but not luck alone. Blutarsky finds Mark Richt marveling at one of Les Miles ballsier play calls from the Tigers win over the Alabama Crimson Tide, leading one to wonder why Richt hasn't taken a few more lessons from Miles. Eat the grass, Mark. Take the ride.

Hawks: The Atlanta Hawks have not traditionally been one of the NBA's best-attended home franchises. Their nightly draw is very dependent on the notoriety of their opponent, and it seems to be more than just about fielding a winning team. Harvard Sports Analysis Collective shows the Hawks should be packing 'em in every night, but they aren't. On a related note, Peachtree Hoops discusses whether the Hawks are really a candidate for contraction, as the NY Daily News suggested, and defends the Hawks in the most Atlanta way possible: talking about the corporations that HQ here.

Mas Hawks: Al Horford's got a bilingual blog. Have you read about Mike Woodson in Spanish yet today?

Inició lleno de incertidumbres tras el final de la campaña anterior, porque tuvimos una dura serie de playoffs frente a Orlando. De un momento a otro, nuestro entrenador, Mike Woodson, se había ido y nuestro jugador principal, Joe Johnson, estaba el mercado de agentes libres y no sabíamos si íbamos a poder mantenerlo en el club. Entre tanto, yo seguía golpeado por la derrota- sentía que no habíamos dejado todo en la cancha como debería haber sucedido, y eso me fastidiaba.
